The Official Broncos Blog Scoring Contest will continue into the playoffs due to popular demand, but here’s a look at the standings entering the final week of the regular season.
Things are tightening up near the top, though The Dane still holds the overall lead in the contest.
In Week 16, the Broncos defeated the Cleveland Browns 34-12. There were a lot of great predictions — 27 bloggers were within single digits of the actual score. But only five are taking home points for the week.
Wolfedom and alex4serg tied for first place as both were only one point away from the actual score with predictions of 34-13 and 35-12, respectively. In second were Andyboy31 and tnalen66, who were both two points off from the real score by guessing 34-14 and 33-13, respectively. Jake rounds it out in third with his prediction of 35-10.
UPDATE: My apologies to killerkod, who predicted 35-13 and therefore also receives second-place points since he was only two points off the actual score. He’s now in 11th place with 12 points on the season.
Before we get to the standings, make sure you get your predictions in for this Sunday’s regular-season finale versus Kansas City here. They’ll be accepted all the way up to the scheduled 2:25 p.m. MST kickoff.
Taking last week’s points into account, below are the top 10 bloggers in the standings entering Week 17:
Next is killerkod with 12 points, three bloggers tied with 10 points then six bloggers tied with eight points scored so far this season. There are 54 bloggers that have made the overall standings, with scores ranging from The Dane’s 31 to 12 bloggers with three points on the season.
